Infinity Ward's conducted a wave of bans aimed at culling cheaters on the PC version of Modern Warfare 2.

The developer's decision to ditch dedicated servers was supposed to make illegal tinkering of the shooter more difficult for hackers, but as anyone who's played the PC version for any length of time will tell you: it doesn't seem to have worked.

Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling sends the good news: "Top men are on it. In fact, the Steam ban hammer is coming down on about 2,500 confirmed #MW2 cheaters on PC today."

Somehow, we can't see this being the end of the story...
